Blackpresence and BN Village - Children of Africa Take Care I want to warn other black people about a racist scam which is spreading over the internet. Blackpresence (previously Black British Forums) and BNVillage are message boards that are being run by a racist hacker. If you read the blackpresence blog (link above) then look around the internet, you will find that this person is a nazi with a history of violence. He has been to prison twice for organizing racist attacks. The idea behind it is to lure black people to a central point where there computers can be hacked and private information stolen from their computer hard disk. This information often includes the victim's home address (from letters etc.). In some cases, if the victim is especially vulnerable (e.g. lone mother, disabled, elderly black female), the hacker uses local racists to attack them. Most people don't realize that they have had their computer hacked and can't understand why they are suddenly being targeted, so the hacker doesn't get caught. Both Blackpresence and BNVillage have a terrible reputation for ID theft. Blackpresence has been through at least FOUR forum re-vamps in the last couple of years. Why? Because they wanted to get rid of all the complaints about hacking out of the archives. As soon as anyone complains on their messageboard, some excuse is found to wipe all their previous posts. If you have a look at the Blackpresence page of the blog you will see a sample 'Joke' from the old message board. The owner of this board says that he is a young black man with a family. Yet he claimed that he didn't notice that his board was covered in racist 'jokes' just like this one! When he was challenged he wiped the archives so people wouldn't see that he is a liar. Why would a genuine black person do these things? The latest trick is to drop the old 'Black British Forum' name completely and use their URL title ' Blackpresence '. The really bad thing about this is that respectable message boards, with an established black management structure like 'The Voice', are being hacked out of existence by the same white racistwho runs a string of fake boards. 'Black Information Link' (BLINK) was another forum run by an established black run organization, 'The 1990 Trust' and it too was hacked by this guy. In the end they had to shut it down. Both Blackpresence and BN Village look like genuine message boards, because they want to trick people into joining. Behind the scenes however, they are both being run by a nasty racist hacker. Have a look at the blog (especially the BN Village page) and you will find well documented screenshots which prove that these boards are fakes. If you want to get this scam stopped, please spread the word and link to this post and the blog as much as possible. Thanks.
